CLIENT 9: THE RISE AND FALL OF ELIOT SPITZER (Alex Gibney, 2010)

***
USA
Gibney charts a fascinating, intricate tale, if not elegantly, then at least in compelling detail. He gives Spitzer a few too many chances to compare himself to a behemoth of mythological proportions. But he also ensures that several absurd but evidently-not-made-up characters - including a bubbly 22-year-old madame, a singularly sleazy political strategist, an ever so slightly unhinged investment banker - say things that are revealing on multiple (and not always intentional) levels.
